Comfort: Spicy Sausage & Lentil Soup

Do you still update your Pinterest account? I do. I especially love searching for recipes because sometimes, eating at home can be a bit of a bore, especially when you are as finicky of an eater as I am. I recently discovered this lentil soup recipe while searching for something "different" to cook. I tend to stick to the same meals, just in different variations, but I don't normally buy lentils, so I wanted to find a quick, flavorful recipe that included them, to experiment with…

Show Up For Yourself

Happy new year, and happy first blog post of 2019! Wow, I can't believe we're already nine whole days into this thing. This year is all about making wise decisions, being fearless, taking some risks, being consistent, and diving deeper into the things that bring me joy. You know the deal, no new year resolutions for me. It's all about constant evolution. Intentions and goals, big and small, and so far, I've been doing pretty good with mine. First off, I started Adriene's 30…

Everybody Loves Sade

Sade Adu's been on my mind lately. I often wonder what my favorite artists are up to - you know, the ones who aren't highly visible in the age of social media. Honestly, I'm thankful for her reclusiveness, although she was once quoted as saying, "I'm not shy or reclusive. I just spend my time with people rather than journalists."  Sade is one of the most significant names in music, and one of the biggest entertainers on the planet, yet, we hardly know anything about h…

Year-End Thoughts & New Year Intentions

I feel like I've hit a plateau. Honestly, I've been feeling this way for some time. Overall, life's not bad, but I do not feel as though I've progressed much in certain areas of my life. This is not to say that I haven't constantly been working towards personal and professional growth, but let's just say I haven't felt a noticeable shift as of late. I don't enjoy being in this head space because sometimes, the mental chatter is so loud, and sometimes, she's …

Sunday's Coffee Table Vibes

I love skimming the pages of the various coffee table books in my collection, and over the past few months, developed this habit of snapping photos of some of my favorite images within those books. One of the things I find peace and comfort in is taking photos. It gets me out of my head. I especially love doing it on Sundays for some reason, I think because this is my only full day off work, and Sunday just gives me that restorative, peaceful feeling. I love being able to get my errands, if an…

Favorite Excerpts From Tracee Ellis Ross's InStyle Interview

On being single: "It's sort of fascinating to be 45 and single and childless. Happily single, I should add.  Not at home crying about it. These are very big and very personal questions that aren't anyone's business but that somehow, like the right to choose, become fodder for public conversation.  Some of the ability to reflect on what I really want comes from pushing up against a society that shames me for not having the expected trappings. I'm very pleased with my existe…
